"It's kind of a mixed team we've chosen. There's both guys who're going for
the overall result as well as several who're able to go for the individual
stages and we're also hoping to do well in the team time trial," comments team
owner Bjarne Riis.
"Gustav and Chris will be trying for the overall result and we're quite
excited about that of course. At the same time Chris'll have the chance to go
for the white Youth Jersey, which Andy Schleck won last year. We also have a
Grand Tour debutant with us in Anders Lund, who's done well and it'll also be
interesting to see how he does under pressure. Jens and Stuart are there to
build up their form towards Tour de France after they've both taken a break
recently, but we know both of them well enough to know that they're able to win
a stage or two at any given time. But that goes for everyone in the line-up –
we'll be going for stage wins as soon as the opportunity comes along," concludes
